Social media has BLASTED family members of the failed New York City terror bomber.
On Tuesday they accused police of ‘heavy-handed tactics’. This charge came a few hours after their son, Akayed Ullah, attempted to slaughter civilians in a crowded subway passageway.
This was posted on Twitter:

It seems that not everyone agreed. Talk show host Montel Williams came back with this tweet:

Others were upset, as well. Twitter was ablaze with comments.
I don’t understand this…the guy tried to kill innocent people with no regard and the family is now upset at some inconveniences?? Would they have felt bad if there were “inconvenient” funerals! #usa 🇺🇸 this insanity has to stop

Assistant Director in Charge of the New York Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, William F. Sweeney, said during a news conference on Tuesday that the bureau was conducting necessary interviews to ensure safety.
Ullah was inspired by ISIS. He was angered by U.S. policies on Middle East when he put on a suicide vest and went out to kill innocent people. Thankfully, he failed. His family is upset that they are being inconvenienced?
He wrote on Facebook before boarding a crowded subway train with a pipe bomb strapped on his body. He stated that Trump has “failed to protect” the nation.
On Tuesday Ullah was charged with supporting an act of terrorism, making terroristic threats and criminal possession of a weapon.
Ullah entered the U.S. on a chain migration visa from Bangladesh and lived in Brooklyn with his mother, sister and two brothers.
Abdul Mannan, an official involved in the investigation, said that Abdul Ahad, Ullah’s uncle, the suspect’s wife and her parents are being interrogated by officials from Bangladesh’s Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime Department.
Now, Attorney General Jeff Sessions called for an end to the chain migration visa and a switch to a merit-based system to prevent terror suspects from entering the country.
Sessions said, “That means welcoming the best and the brightest and turning away not only terrorists, but gang members and criminals. We should give priority to those who are likely to thrive here, such as those who speak English or are highly skilled, not someone chosen at random or who happens to be somebody’s relative.”
I agree with Sessions. It’s about time we do something about people immigrating to America with the ideals that support killing us.
